Slash

His & Her Tattoos

... With Rebound Girlfriend

1/27/2015 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0126-slash-neck-tattoos-TMZ-01
Reconciliation is probably off the table for Slash ... 'cause less than one month after calling off his marriage, the rocker got matching tats with his new GF ... and then MOVED IN with her. 

TMZ has learned ... the 49-year-old decided to prove his commitment to Meegan Hodges by permanently marking their bodies with a matching set of GPS coordinates.  

And if the tats weren't proof enough of a serious relationship -- we've also learned they've moved into a house together in the deep part of the San Fernando Valley ... with Meegan's two teenage daughters. 

As for the home, it's nice ... 3,120 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a pool and a rooftop deck -- and we're told Slash is leasing it.  

As we previously reported, Slash filed for divorce from Perla Ferrar on December 30th after 13 years of marriage. They have two kids of their own. 

So far, no comment from Perla ... but we're guessing she probably won't be sending a housewarming gift.

Ghost Adventures Star

Demons Be Gone!

Dumps Haunted Pad

EXCLUSIVE

Ghost Adventures Star Sells Haunted Home"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans is through dealing with Satan and his minions ... now they're someone else's problem.

Bagans survived 20 months of a dead housing market, and finally unloaded the house he claims has been possessed ever since he brought home a human skull (for research, of course).

Not shockingly ... that claim didn't really help move the house any faster. 

Waiting out the demon paid off -- we're told Bagans got $445,000 for the house ... an $85K profit. 

As for the new owner, we have a recommendation for a cleaning lady ...

Celeb Realtor Kurt Rappaport

Forget Minecraft

K.R. Owns the Best Pad in L.A.

EXCLUSIVE

Kurt Rappaport Home

Jay Z and Beyonce may think they lost out on the best house in SoCal -- that's because they never laid eyes on Malibu mega-realtor Kurt Rappaport's $100M palace ... and it's insane.

Don't get too excited ... he's not selling ... but consider this -- the sprawling 22,000 sq-ft Malibu paradise sits on 6 acres and comes with the longest private pool in the entire state -- 168 epic feet.

Kurt, who brokers deals for a slew of celebs, is a patient guy ... it only took 7 years to build the place with a $60M price tag. That's a modest $40M return in the year and a half since completion.

But if you're looking for another reason to hate your life, consider Rappaport is only 43.

Now step away from the ledge.

Done with L.A.

... For Now

EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z and Beyonce have scratched plans to get a wildly expensive pad in L.A. ... after losing out to an incredibly rich nerd in a ferocious bidding war.

TMZ broke the story ... Jay and Bey put an offer in on a sick Beverly Hills mansion ... we're told just shy of $70 mil. At the time we were told they were only several million off from sealing the deal. But former Minecraft mastermind Markus Persson swooped in and sealed the deal for $70M.

Mr. and Mrs. Z have told close friends in L.A. they really wanted that house and it's soured them on looking further. They looked before eyeing the property and found nothing they really liked.

So for now ... they're putting L.A. on ice.

Jaime Pressly

My Accountant Screwed Me

In My Garden

1/19/2015 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0120_Jaime-Pressly_tmzJaime Pressly doesn't have grounds that would justify a $220,000 gardening bill, but she definitely thinks she has grounds for suing her ex-accountant who paid that tab to her landscaper. 

Jaime claims in a new lawsuit ex-pencil pusher Daniel Rivero paid the loot over just 5 years, which she says is ridiculous since she has a fairly modest home in the San Fernando Valley.

But it doesn't stop there. The actress says the accountant screwed up her taxes and now she owes $850K to Uncle Sam. And there's more. She says the guy made 3 bad business investments that cost her $170K.

Pressly's now asking for $900K plus punitive damages.  

So much for lawn and order.

Joe Biden

Drive By Shooting at Veep's Home

breaking news

0118-joe-biden-getty-01Multiple gunshots were fired outside of Vice President Joe Biden's home in Delaware Saturday night ... this according to the feds.

A vehicle reportedly drove by his home around 8:25 PM and fired off multiple shots from hundreds of yards beyond the Secret Service's perimeter.

The Vice Prez and his wife were not home when the shots went off ... but they were briefed on the incident following the shooting.

Biden's home is located several hundred yards away from the main road where the shots were fired ... and the residence will be searched to figure out if any bullets hit his house.

Shortly after the shooting, a driver attempted to get past the police perimeter ... but was immediately arrested by police.  Unclear if this is the same vehicle, or driver who fired the shots.

Akon Sued

Your Mama Screwed Me

On Pimped Out Floors

EXCLUSIVE

Akon Owes Money
Akon will be walking on water if his super baller glass floor ever gets installed -- but the contractor says it ain't happening until he gets paid, and Akon's mom stops flaking out on the plans.

Durable Steel Structures filed a lien against Akon's Georgia mansion ... claiming it's owed $36,765 for work already done on the home. Both Akon and his mother are named on the lien.

The contractor tells TMZ he's done a lot of work to design a glass floor that will make it seem like you're walking above a coral reef. He says the plan is to have LED lights projecting the reef images below the glass. Can you say P-I-M-P?

Only problem -- the contractor claims once it came time to install the floor, Akon's mom couldn't make a decision about the lighting ... so now he's left holding the bag.

Mama Akon and son also had a problem with a contractor in 2012, who sued ... claiming he was owed $51,941 for work on the same house.

We contacted Akon's camp ... but no word back yet.

Mama June

I Still Got Money to Burn ...

On a New House!

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June New Home
Mama June may be out of a job but she just scored a sweet new house.

The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" gravy train may have come to an abrupt halt ...  but that didn't keeping June from splurging on new digs ... a 3,225 sq. ft, 4 bedroom home in Georgia. And get this (don't read if you're from CA or NY -- it's too painful) ... she paid $149K.

The house may look familiar ... it's the same one she scoped out with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel last September, with Honey Boo Boo in tow.

That could torpedo the truce between Chickadee and June, but she might get over it once she sees the pool.

From Sink Shelf Invention

EXCLUSIVE

0115-bernard-pollard-invention-money-fun-art-getty-01The next Thomas Edison could totally kick your ass ... 'cause NFL star Bernard Pollard tells TMZ Sports the counter-top organizer he invented last year totally BLEW UP in sales this holiday season.

Pollard, who won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2012 invented a bathroom counter-top organizer last year called the "Smart Sink Tray" that he says lets was inspired by the tiny sinks out in Baltimore.

"I first thought it up back in 2012 ... I'm a germaphobe and the counter space in Baltimore was so limited that I wanted something to expand it."

His Howie Mandelness has led to cold hard cash with Pollard telling us this holiday season business was BOOMING for the "Smart Sink Tray" -- with a sales spike of nearly 60%.

"It was really cool to see the orders come in. The east coast went crazy for it."

And Pollard says things are only looking up from here ... 'cause the tray has gotten so popular, it's drawn interest from hotels all over the country and outdoor retailer Camping World.

"We putting it your RV's."

'Real Housewife' Phaedra Parks

Hubby's in the Big House

So I'm Selling Mine

1/15/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0114_phaedra_parks_house_launch"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is way better with money than convicted hubby Apollo Nida ... she raked in major dough selling one of her Georgia homes.  

Sources close to Phaedra tell TMZ she scored over $27K in profit when she sold her 9,148 sq-ft home last fall -- a huge financial boost when you consider Apollo had just started his 8-year prison stretch for money laundering and check fraud

She originally snagged the 5 bedroom/5 bath property for $322K on her own back in 2001, and let it go last October for $349K. Great timing for some extra scratch -- Parks dropped strong hints last month she's going to divorce Nida.

"All the women who independent, throw your hands up at me!"

Keyshawn Johnson

Sued Over Imaginary Bowling Alley

1/14/2015 6:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0109-keyshawn-johnson-bowling-getty-01

Keyshawn Johnson is being sued over an AWESOME in-home bowling alley ... problem is, it was never built ... and Key is calling BS on the whole situation. 

Here's the long story short ... Key used to own a patch of expensive land in Calabasas right near the mansion he sold to Kourtney Kardashian

Key planned to build a massive new home on the dirt patch -- complete with a cool in-home bowling alley, wine room and more -- and hired a design firm to draw up the plans.

But here's the rub, the house never got built and Key eventually moved out of town ... but according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Johnson never paid the design company what it claims it was owed for drawing up the blueprints. 

Now, a collection agency is on Key's ass -- looking to recover more than $40k in back payments for the mansion that never was. 

But Johnson says it's all a baseless money grab -- claiming the blueprints were drawn up by his architect, not the designer ... and he doesn't believe he owes the designer a single cent. 

"Be careful who you deal with. Everybody's looking for a buck. You can't get paid for work you didn't do."

BTW -- Key eventually sold the plot of land ... and to this day, it remains an undeveloped pile of dirt ... with no bowling alley.

Young Jeezy

I Knew I Was Innocent

So I Bought My Own Big House

EXCLUSIVE

Young Jeezy New HomeRapper Young Jeezy was so confident of beating the rap in his weapons case, he went and dropped a cool $1.5M on a fly new Georgia mansion ... a MONTH before learning his fate. 

As TMZ first reported ... weapons charges were dismissed against the rapper last month in connection with a fatal shooting at a Wiz Khalifa concert. The case was weak ... in fact, it made no sense.

Jeezy was so confident of winning, he bought the Atlanta spread in November.

Jeezy should let his legal team crash anytime they want ... he's definitely got the space ... the 9,000 sq. ft. pad is a cavernous 6 bed/7bath paradise sitting on 1.2 acres. 

The best part? If the cops ever come knocking again, they'll have to pass through his 600 lb cast iron front doors.

Solid.
